    Hi, my chickens have been laying for just about 6 weeks. My Easter Egger started to go broody and tried to sit on the empty nest for two days. I successfully broke her out of it, but she still hasn't layed again and it's been a week. How long until she resumes laying again?

    Mine are doing the same thing. Started laying about 6 weeks ago, then each one of them went into this broody mood. I've had to put them in a time out pen to break it. In the meanwhile...no eggs:(
